http://www.nbcnews.com

Coroner David Crerar issued a final report Tuesday into the death of 31-year-old Natasha Harris, concluding that the mother of eight died from a heart attack. He said the large amount of Coca-Cola she drank likely led to metabolic imbalances that gave rise to her heart problems, adding that Coke was likely a "substantial factor" in her death. A New Zealand food industry association on Wednesday rejected a coroner's call to add health warnings to soft-drink labels.

http://www.latimes.com

California's computer problems, which have already cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars, have mounted as state officials cut short work on a $208-million DMV technology overhaul that is only half done. The project was intended to revamp the process for registering vehicles and issuing driver's licenses, with the entire overhaul scheduled to be finished this year. But state officials said they were canceling the vehicle registration component because little progress was being made. The decision is a setback for the Department of Motor Vehicles, which has a history of such stumbles.

Local Government Use Traffic Enforcement to Scam Citizens

http://moderndaymachiavelli.com

Unlawful and deceptive police officers,and other governments are perpetuating an organized "racket" to harass local law abiding citizens through traffic enforcement. How these entities use traffic enforcement as a means to unlawfully "tax" citizens and generate revenue through traffic citations to make up for failing budgets. This is even more important now than ever because of the failing economy. I am a former police officer and police instructor and have been on the show before. What I know and talk about I know from the inside, first hand.

Free market gets weed to Colorado ahead of regulated market.

http://blogs.westword.com

Legislators in Colorado are still working out how to regulate recreational marijuana. Until new guidelines are announced medical dispensaries are still playing by the old rule book and only selling to those with valid registrations. While sales will be regulated, Amendment 64 clearly states that its legal for anyone 21+ to possess or gift up to an ounce (and grow 6 of their own plants) the free market has come up with an innovative 64 compliant solution.

Government Persecution, From Aaron Swartz to Bradley Manning

http://www.thenation.com

“Prosecutors destroy a life.” That could be a headline in every newspaper every day in a land where the answer to every problem (and many nonproblems) is police and prisons. When 26-year-old Internet prodigy and freedom of information activist Aaron Swartz committed suicide on January 11, the tragedy was the direct result of US attorneys deciding to throw criminal charges at him for violating a website’s “terms of services” while accessing publicly subsidized academic research.
